That is so beyond clever of you st, as a matter of fact I would say it's super genius of you, no one will be able to see through that one why you've just about pulled the wool over the eyes of the quilter with that one, cheers mate you're really on to something. :roll:

Uh, no. I didn't "rewrite" jack shit by highlighting the main points of your quote.

Here's the main "sentence" I was targeting (I have to cut somewhere because you don't really write grammatical sentences):
starving student wrote:there's nothing wrong with being a republican I don't know why anyone would rant about that, it has nothing to do with the question I asked but
Guess what? Still means the same thing in "English." You're claiming that your question has nothing to do with the potential person answering being Republican which just isn't true. Unless you're changing it now??

Nobody rewrote anything. No its just another example of how you have a really hard time staying coherent in a discussion about things like this. I'm guessing because you're so emotionally involved in it all.

dude I apologize I think you're not actually feigning here? look I didn't say the question has nothing to do with republicans, I said the question doesn't have anything to do with 'the notion that there is anything wrong with being republican or ranting such' I'm sorry I thought that was as obvious to you as it is to everyone else, hope you understand now.

I'm going to sneak back on topic now :)

so beats you don't think that the passions are a little higher than what party line syndrome would generally muster ?

@ loops re rachel maddow, but what do you think of her research team, her humor isn't really my taste but
I love how she leads and exits with facts, there's like more facts in one of her broadcast than fox can get together in a whole months worth of broadcasting, in that way she's refreshing?

Passions are higher when somebody’s personal economy is fucked and they mistakenly think the government fixes the economy. It doesn’t. Big business fucks up and fixes the economy, but when the economy improves and stabilizes whoever is in office will get and accept credit for it.

I actually don't think she's that intelligent, but I enjoy her show. It's way too much about smarmy entertainment, and in that respect there's very little difference from the folks at Fox News. Olbermann was the same way, but also loved his show and miss it...

Facts? Hmm. More often as not the issues on both sides are presented with an array of 'facts' that really are more or less 'half-truths'. Mention anything about the economy on MSNBC and chances are they'll leave out some critical counter-point because it flies in the face of their position. Same with Fox.

Both are merely extensions of their respective parties. Nothing more, nothing less.

The chicks are definitely hotter on Fox, though. No doubt.

Exactly! I do believe one of the prerequisites to obtaining the Rhodes Scholarship is to be lacking in intelligence :roll:

She's smart enough to know it's fun to eat pussy.

no way man, she's got quite a noggin on her shoulders, but more importantly her whole teams foundation is about gathering facts, jokes aside she definitely does not do what fox does for instance fox says obama lost 92 percent of womens jobs or something like that and they kindly forgot to include the fact that they were including the millions of jobs lost to women before he even got into office and they even included the women who lost their jobs on the day he was sworn it,,, rachel never does shit like that. another thing she does on a regular basis without hesitation is issue retractions if something she puts out is incorrect, she'll even issue retractions for shit that just flew over someones head and was misconstrued, fox will never retract anything (well they might) but no where near as much or in the way that she does. on top of all of that people treat her like vomit, she does not treat people like that even if they come at her that way, that's something I can always find respect in even though I don't practice that ethos enough myself.

I remember when john stewart and rachel maddow were fighting because he was saying the same thing you're saying, you know all things are equal between fox and msnbc etc... but he likes facts too so then when he started to fact check both networks he found out that actually even though all networks are full of shit fox is actually full of more shit and all of the fact finding agencies concur.

about her humor though I don't know what it is, she's a nice enough person but something about how she jokes just rubs me the wrong way, I'm always tired of it before she even starts :lol:

no doubt, I'd like to see how they act at 16-18% unemployment, i don't think they could handle it.

it seems like if any one is a republican they are too embarrassed to admit it here,
now we just need the same for democrats.

here,s to hoping this election will have the lowest voter turn out in history!

if your vote does not count ( and it doesn't ) don't participate in the scam.

I was about to vote for mccain myself last time until he lost his mind and ran the straight talk express straight to hell, on top of that he started war mongering like a fuckin viking, and I don't even want to start on palin.
votes do matter though, it's just that we don't enforce their value. The power is still with the people and the people are still the assholes.
